The new GLA-Class in model car form: Crowd Pleaser for the Display Cabinet

2014-Mercedes-Benz-GLA

Stuttgart. Now that the GLA-Class has been successfully launched in the markets, the fifth member of the Mercedes-Benz SUV family is set to take its rightful place in model car collectors' display cabinets. The high-quality, lovingly detailed features of the flexible interior clearly position the GLA as a compact premium SUV.

The 1:18, 1:43 and 1:87-scale miniatures produced in cooperation with Norev, Schuco and Herpa remain true to the original in this area as well. Light-footedly, the original GLA-Class masters all day-to-day challenges and is also robust enough for light off-road excursions. The high-quality model cars have been produced in authentic semblance with the original vehicle’s CAD design data. They also sport original paint finishes and are assembled per hand. The model cars are available online at http://shop.mercedes-benz.de and from Mercedes-Benz sales partners.

The 1:18 scale GLA-Class is available in the genuine paint finishes of polar silver, orient brown and mountain grey MAGNO. Model car specialist Norev hand-assembles the miniature models from over 110 individual parts. Further details of these zinc injection-moulded models (€ 69.90[1]) include panoramic roof, sports seats, automatic transmission, Intelligent Light System (ILS) headlamps, roof rails and 5-twin-spoke wheels in bichromatic finish. The luggage compartment, bonnet and doors can all be opened. All interior details have been reproduced true to the original GLA-Class.

The interior features a high-quality printed finish.

The same comprehensive scope of equipment from A for "automatic" to S for "sports seats" is featured in the 1:43 scale GLA-Class (€ 29.90).
